ahhhhh camp memories. I am so excited to be painting something that from a little piece of me. I've worked for two years at Center Lake Bible Camp and it has been a blessing to work there. I've met some great people there who love the Lord and I love being a counselor. Being with children 24/7 can be a little wild but totally worth it. Kids are so much fun and full of energy.
If you have seen my process work for camp memories you have seen my fat elephant about to do a belly flop in the lake above a little duck. This is suppose to illustrate the rule of having a buddy when swimming at camp. So the elephant and the duck are buddies. Though you are not suppose to jump on your buddy, it is just a fun little illustration that has a lot energy and humor. Well...I think it's pretty humorous.
So I haven't started the final painting. I am creating quite the collection of practice work for this project. Still trying to figure out watercolor paints and how they work. As you can see, I already have four different "paintings" going on. So it's been slow but once I get all the problems out, it will be smooth sailing on the final painting.
Sailing. That sounds like a lot of fun.
So I think the title is going to be Buddy Check! Or...Swimming with a Buddy. I can't help but think of Heavyweights, with Ben Stiller, when Larz is explaining the buddy system. BUDDDYYYYYYYYY!
Keep a look out for the final! I hope to get it down in a couple weeks...maybes.
